Discover The Best Vase Shape For Your Flowers

November 30, 2016

Flowers are essential for any event to add colour and atmosphere. Matching your event flowers with the best vase shape helps to create visual "sense" of your decor theme and to best showcase your flower types.

Here's some vases and flowers that we think are a perfect match:

Compote vase
A compote vase (a wide-mouthed, shallow bowl on a short stem height) is the latest trend in vase shapes.

       

Flower match: Peonies and hydrangeas

Why? These will fill up a compote bowl vase and give it body and volume, paired with smaller flowers, to give the piece some variety and fullness and foliage, vines and young flower buds to create a textural feast for the eyes.

Goldfish bowl shape vase


The roundness of goldfish-bowl style vases (available in glass and metal) can support unruly blossoms and keep the floral arrangements looking loose, to create a casual mood in the room.

Flower match: Sweet peas, poppies and lilies

The ball shape is pleasingly flexible for so many types of events - and it's low enough for guests to see over.

Cylindrical vase


These tall vases can create height and a variety of shape to really give that 'wow-factor' to the room. Create drama by lining the entrance wall with them on plinths, or place them with show-stopping flowers as the centrepiece for extra-large function rooms with high (4 metre-high and more) ceilings.

Flower Match: Flowering branches such as sunflowers, hydrangeas or any bloom with a large head and a bulky stem.

Why? The height of the vase and its narrow shape can control otherwise shrub-like flowers. The vase can also give body and volume to blooms that usually look solitary.

Square vase


Square vases create a more modern feel to your event, no matter what decor theme.

Square vases can be solo, grouped in squares of four or positioned to run down the centre of a communal table.

Flower Match: Blooms with delicate, straight stems and flowers with heavy heads such as daffodils, hyacinths or amaryllis.

Why? A graphic vase needs graphic blooms. The soft edges of the flowers help alleviate the angular, compact vase shape.

Geometric-shaped vase

Create a striking centrepiece with these modern and stylish hexagonal style vases that create an industrial, artistic atmosphere in the room.

Flower Match: Succulents, native foliage or why not create a terrarium for a one-off look.

Why? These vases are great for dry floral arrangements or arrangements that need minimal water. Succulents and native foliage are perfect, long lasting plants that beautifully add a natural contrast with the sharp metal edges of the vase.
